Someone older, patient and wise, who understood you when you were young and searching, and gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it. For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly twenty years ago. Maybe, like Mitch, you lost track of this mentor as you made your way, and the insights faded. Wouldn't you like to see that person again, ask the bigger questions that still haunt you? Mitch Albom had that second chance. He rediscovered Morrie in the last months of the older man's life. Knowing he was dying of ALS - or motor neurone disease - MItch visited Morrie in his study every Tuesday, just as they used to back in college. Their rekindled relationship turned into one final 'class': lessons in how to live. TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE is a magical chronicle of their time together, through which Mitch shares Morrie's lasting gift with the world.Hide synopsis
The plot follows the personal growth of the author as he deals with the life and dying process of a beloved professor. He learns what is important in life, and what brings happiness and meaning and we watch as the author brings that knowledge into his own life.
It's an easy read, yet it reveals a lot about life through the conversation between the author and his Professor. It's a very touching story of a teacher-and-student relationship, and the courage of the Professor to face death is tremendous.
This is one of the best books I have read. It is truely touching, inspiring and made me feel very humble. One of those times in your life where you stop and think " This is where I need to take stock and change where my lifes journey is taking me" You'll need a box of tissues though!!
